Amy Carmichael, Wednesday's Prayer Girls & LinkUp Party!

Hi Everyone! I have some work to get back to my publisher (my first book coming out soon! Keep watching! It's on faith and marriage and more details with a look at the cover soon!)) so I just have a minute so I can get back to work. But I had to say hi! I don't like being this busy, but hated to miss a chance to share a great spiritual nugget with you.

The nugget I wanted to share with you was a sign that Elisabeth Elliot had up right behind her typewriter. My daughter and I had the thrill of a lifetime as we were invited in August to come up and stay with Elisabeth and her husband. You can read prior blogs on that, but I have so many photos that speak a thousand words with you. She is a great hero of the faith that has endured much in her life. You can read about her at www.elisabethelliot.org.

Here is the sign she had behind her typewriter; it's from a poem by Amy Carmichael whom Elisabeth never met, but greatly admired (She wrote her biography, A Chance to Die):

 There was a  black and white photo of Amy holding on of the hundreds of Indian children she was mother to in a ministry she started in India. She saved hundreds of Indian children from Hindu temple prostitution. She dedicated decades of her life to it. What heroes of the faith both Amy and Elisabeth were and are!

More next time, it's back to work, but I always have time to pray for you. Keep reading!

Walk by faith,


  1. Please pray that I will be what it is I write and speak about. What can I pray for you?

    1. We ALL need to be like that.
      Father God, first we THANK YOU for Juana! And for the wonderful example that she IS to us. She asked us to pray for her that she will be what it is she writes and speaks about. But Father, ssshhh don't tell her, but she IS! Because YOU ARE! THANK YOU!

    2. Thank you, Sister! You are a blessing, Jana.

  2. Truly an amazing woman!!! Thank you for sharing! I pray for you Juana that you will be formed in Christ's character. God's blessing and grace be upon you. Please pray that I will be healed of all my health challenges so I can continue to go to the jail and bring God's good news to the inmates there. Thank you!!!

    1. Hi Patsy! Let's go to our Heavenly Father about your health and calling. Loving Lord, we love You, and are so thankful that You love us so much that You sent Your Son to die for us. In His name, the beautiful name of Jesus Lord, we come and ask that you heal Patsy of her health challenges that she may do the work You've given her to do. We know you are Sovereign and allowed this but we pray for her complete healing so she continue to be Your hands and feet in the jail. Amen.

  3. So THANKFUL for sweet Libby! Amen and amen!

    1. Lord, I join my voice with Jana's to say thank you for this new life and for all of Libby's growth and progress! We thank You, Lord!

  4. Beautiful. My new website will be launching soon...I am so excited but I am praying to abide in Him and do this writing thing for Him alone and no one else. Its such a hard balance. Make me thy fuel! Thank you.

    1. Oh Lord, may Andread keep her eyes on You in the ministry You have given her to do. May she have the practical help she needs to launch the website to spread your fame. Make us both Your fuel, Lord like Amy Carmichael felt, believed and wrote which ministers to us today. Amen.

  5. Prayingfor you.

    Heavenly Father give Juana strength and courage not only to speak and write for You, but to share You by faith in actions also. May she speak and act in a way that reflects you back at a dark world. In the name of your Son, Jesus. Amen.

    Praising the Lord for giving me a sign and confidence in an area where I have been struggling recently. And praying that it continues.

    1. Beckey, that you so much for taking the time to pray for me. Now it's your turn. Dear Lord, we praise You that You have made it clear for Beckey in the way she is to go. We love Your direction Lord, and we thank you for the extra dose of confidence you have given Beckey in an area that you know has been hard for her. Lord, may she keep hearing Your voice and following you, day by day. Amen.
